Friday Favorites: Antique Furniture


Thanks to Pinterest, my new favorite thing is antique furniture. My husband is not as thrilled with this new hobby as I am. His grandparents were getting rid of some old furniture, so I was lucky enough to grab these awesome pieces: 

This thing is everything I ever dreamed of. I don't even know what it's called. You can lift up the top and underneath is a record player, cassette player, radio and set of microphones. There are tube speakers underneath that sound so old school. My plan with this is to paint it a bright glossy white, then remove the top and replace it with a thick piece of glass so that you can look down into it. I'm so excited about this project, but I have a feeling it will take me a while to complete!

Mirror pictures are so awkward, don't you think? Look how amazing the shape of this mirror is! Again, my plan with this is a glossy white. I'm so excited to turn this vintage mirror into bright modern wall decor. 

Ok, this is kind of a stretch, I know
However, I can't wait to hear the sweet words "you were right" when I'm done with this project. My husband really isn't thrilled with having these in our garage at all {& I don't blame him}. I'm hoping Pinterest will teach me how to upholster like a pro. Glossy white chairs with a bright modern fabric? To. die. for. Just you see. 

Hopefully I'll be posting some before and after pics soon. I'm not sure that I have a choice since my husband will want his garage back sooner than later!
